On Tuesday, May 16, Senate Bill 1046, “Castle Doctrine” legislation sponsored by Senator Alan Cropsey (R-33) is scheduled to be heard by the Senate Judiciary Committee. This legislation will help the citizens of Michigan in two important ways:
- protects your right to self-defense, and ensures you do not have a “duty to retreat” from a violent attacker; and
- gives immunity from criminal prosecution and civil action for the use of such force.
Please call the Senate Judiciary Committee at (517) 373-3760 and respectfully ask them to support SB 1046.
